can a popup window return data to parent window? - PHP Development

Is it possible to do the following in php: I want to have a main form open. In the form I want a button that will open a popup window so the user can search for something. The user can then select what they want, and the popup window closes and the main form (which is still open) shows the search results. Can anyone suggest a best course of action to acheive this? Thanks...

    You'll need a bit of javascript in there as well.

    The simplest way is probably to get the results page to take an optional
    search parameter. All the popup has to do then is do the following:

    <script language="javascript">
    function search() {
    var searchstring;
    // get search parameters into searchstring

    window.opener.location.href = 'resultspage.php?' + searchstring;
    window.close();
    }
    <form onSubmit='search()'>
    <!-- actual search form -->
    </form>

    Sounds like a javascript thing.

    Just look for some examples for changing form values.
    The only difference is you need to reference the opening window..
    it'd be something like
    (from the pop-up)
    opener.doent.forms[1].inputname.value = 'new value'; // my
    javascript is terrible

    ??

    suppose there is a text field with an ID as tx1 in the opener window.
    You can set its value from the popup window by

    opener.element.getElementByID("tx1").value = "search result";
